Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:02pm

Will you follow in the footsteps of Cork entrepreneurs Daniel Mackey and Peter Coppinger of Teamwork and take home the 2019 EY Entrepreneur of the Year overall award?

The Teamwork founders were the 2018 winners and will go on to represent Ireland at the World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Monte Carlo in June.

Now in its 22nd year, the 2019 programme was officially opened this week for nominations. The theme of this year’s programme is Be Brave, Be Bold and all sectors and businesses of all sizes across the island of Ireland are invited to submit their nominations until 15 February. The 24 finalists for 2019 will be announced on 23 April.

Kevin McLoughlin, Partner Lead for EY Entrepreneur of the Year Ireland said: “This year we are committed to supporting and encouraging our island’s entrepreneurs to be brave and to be bold, whether that means taking a first step with a brilliant idea, or taking a calculated risk to drive growth in their business. They will be able to take inspiration from, and tap into the vast knowledge of Ireland’s most fearless entrepreneurs who have gone through this programme in the past.”

He added: “A highlight of the programme will be when our finalists go on our renowned international CEO Retreat taking place this year in Hong Kong, designed to help Irish entrepreneurs transform their thinking and vision through executive education and inspiration from some of the world’s leading CEOs.”

Operating in more than 60 countries worldwide, EY Entrepreneur of the Year is recognised as the most prestigious business accolade for entrepreneurs. The programme is open to entrepreneurs from all sectors and growth stages, across the island of Ireland.

The awards programme is divided into three categories - Emerging, Industry and International - with eight finalists chosen per category.

The 24 finalists will be selected by an independent panel of judges, comprising former winners and chaired by Anne Heraty of CPL Resources plc. For further info or for people who wish to put themselves forward or nominate an entrepreneur with their consent, they can fill out the online nomination form at www.eoy.ie.
